Becoming a leader at work is a very challenging task and it requires sufficient experience and skills to lead a team. If you are working in any organization and you want to become a leader of your staff, here are 7 tips that might help you:

We’ve all heard about the importance of being a team player, but what does that really mean in the workplace?

To really understand what being a team player means, you must first understand the nature of teams in the workplace. Generally speaking, a team is a group of about three to 12 people who work together toward a specific long- or short-term goal — like organizing a holiday party, overseeing a software upgrade, or handling an organization’s customer complaints. In some cases, it’s fairly easy to adjust to working in a team environment because it’s made up of people within a department who already have a history together. Other times, teams are interdepartmental, which can make them a bit more challenging. (more…)
